My Dear Old Friend, Rodney Bingenheimer

"Rodney Bingenheimer With Tab,West Hollywood, California-1982"       My good friend of so many years. This image had almost been destroyed beyond restoration during that "incident" last Oct-Dec. Now, Rodney's portrait is back in glorious full color. I remember I was shooting in a studio on Santa Monica Blvd., across from The Formosa, and two doors down from Rodney's Nightclub. Rodney popped by,then left, and came back with his iridescent blue liner on, and very shyly asked me "If you have time, will you take one shot of me?" I shot three rolls;two color,one B+W(From which I was able to capture a stunningly stark portrait of Rodney, unlike anything taken of him. a very private side,showing him as the determined discoverer of some of the greatest rock legends of all time)
